U.S. Post Office Always Delivers…Postcard Sent In 1962 Finally Arrives!


HUDSON, Ohio, March 15 (UPI) — An insurance agent in Hudson, Ohio, says he received a postcard from someone he did not know and was dated 1962.

Insurance agent Dave Conn said he was confused by the postcard signed by someone named Fran that appeared in his post office box recently, the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal reported Thursday.

"Oh great!, my postcard finally arrived"

After doing some digging, Conn said he connected the postcard to the late Beacon Journal reporter Frances B. Murphey, who routinely traveled the nation and sent postcards to friends.

While the postcard’s sender and intended recipient — Marion White, who died in 1998 — have been identified, the reason for the delay in its delivery from Montana remains a mystery.

”It could have been stuck in equipment,” U.S. Postal Service spokesman Victor Dubina suggested.

“We will never know, but the important thing is once we see it, we will get it delivered,” Dubina added.

B.S.–That’s the important thing?  Not that the piece of mail was delivered 47 years late?  And if it was caught in equipment that says they are still using the same machine that they were using in 1962.

Conn told the Beacon Journal he is equally uncertain as to what he will do with the postcard.

B.S. Report–Just write “Return to Sender” on it and you can rest comfortable in the fact that it should reach the intended persons decendents by the year 2056.

Now that's snailmail!

Now that's snailmail!

  1. This goes to show why the USPS is going downhill!! At least with Email you can know whether you message has been received or not. The US Postal Service should be ashamed!! This is why I try my hardest to do my business on the Internet rather than “depend” on the snail mail service.

  2. the usps is “going downhill” because not enough people are taking advantage of it. and with the internet, who bothers nowadays?

    you can track letters and packages, so you can know if your message/parcel has been sent.

    the usps shouldnt be ashamed. yeah, a postcard was lost for many years, but even with the advance of technology, they still have a lot of things to go through daily. one letter, although personally important, cannot define the entire nationwide institution.

    and think: what would happen if technology failed us? it wouldn’t serve us well to completely rely on machinery.
